Naomi Pierce isn’t the type to let a cowboy sweep her off feet. It’s not her first rodeo, after all. But when she returns to her Texas hometown, she can’t help but be swept up again in the rough-and-tumble world of hard-riding, bronco-busting good-ol’-boys she loved as a girl. She might be here to photograph her Rodeo Queen best friend. But it’s one fine-looking cowboy who really captures her eye…
Brice Harper is all man, all muscle, and all heart. From the moment he rides into the stadium, he can’t help but notice the beautiful stranger with a camera watching him fromthe stands. It doesn’t take a zoom lens to see the sparks of instant attraction. But things really heat up when he meets Naomi up-close—and he discovers that someone is stalking her friend. Brice wouldn’t be any kind ofcowboy if he didn’t offer to help the ladies out. But can the rough rider keep this spirited shutterbug out of danger—without risking his heart?
I thought I was getting a cowboy romance and it ended up being much more than I anticipated. Cowboy, Cross My Heart was a romantic suspense...and heavy on the suspense part.
Dangerous characters, deeply depraved antagonists and dramatic circumstance led to some white knuckle reading.
I found Cowboy, Cross My Heart engaging and entertaining but I missed that special character connection that I love in my reading time. I found quite a few of the secondary characters did grab me and made Cowboy, Cross My Heart a really enjoyed read.
I received this ARC copy of Cowboy, Cross My Heart from St. Martin's Paperbacks. This is my honest and voluntary review. Cowboy, Cross My Heart is set for publication Aug. 28, 2018.
